Think Outside The Box Office
“Collaboration and dialogue are also the foundation for everything Jon has outlined in precise detail in this book. They should be every filmmaker’s mantra for the days ahead. It is not a question of "just doing it"… Eat up every morsel Reiss provides. Internalize it and make it your second skin.”
Ted Hope, Producer of over 60 independent films including, Adventureland, The Ice Storm, 21 Grams
“This book is an excellent resource for any filmmaker, regardless of their level of experience, budget or connections. Reiss imparts his wisdom like a funny older brother or friend.”
